Professional Skateboarder and MTV star Rob Dyrdek will be on hand to open the new street skateboarding facility developed through his foundation. Following the opening ceremony, the DC Skate Team will be on hand to skate with local skateboarders.
The Safe Spot, Skate Spot is a program developed by The Rob Dyrdek/DC Shoes Skate Plaza Foundation to support legal and safe skate spots for communities interested in developing skateable areas for their skateboarders.

The Lafayette location is the first Safe Spot, Skate Spot to be developed under the Foundation’s new program.

In case you’ve been wondering, Penny has been filming non-stop for the new Flip DVD, Extremely Sorry, which we’ve all been waiting for forever. As hard as Penny goes, you can expect a solid part, no doubt. Peep the full Fakie Tre Flip sequence below.
